Use of Cannabis accepted by 66% of UK population
A YouGov poll shows that two-thirds of Britons want cannabis removed from illegal drug classification - most considering cigarettes and alcohol to be far more harmful. That's 66% of the population - hardly a minority!
Time, one assumes, for parliamentarians to wake up to reality. They are supposed to be serving the public after all and if this is the new majority position - so be it!
Getting cannabis offenders out of jail would also do a good deal to solve John Reid's much-spouted prison over-crowding problem. The money saved on building extra places could thus be redirected toward solving the social problems that are so often disguised by the focus on drug use.
